LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - The Arkansas lottery says gamblers set a sales record of $1.25 million in March for the Natural State Jackpot game.

The game’s jackpot grew steadily through the month and was at $350,000 for Tuesday night’s drawing.

The game started in August 2012 and is an Arkansas-only draw game. Officials say the game has a high profit margin, with more than 50 percent of ticket sales returned to the lottery, which funds college scholarships.

In the current jackpot run, there have been 55 consecutive draws without anyone winning the top prize. On Saturday, the game set a single-day record with sales of $100,157.

The game is drawn nightly, Monday through Saturday.
